Page Plans Sketch - Summertime...


...and the livin' is easy. You Are My Sunshine set by Gina K Designs had yet to see ink so there's no time like the present since I needed to make something with my first sketch as a guest designer for Page Plans! This is Lesli's Sketch 12 (check out the link for more design team inspiration, if you like to scrapbook there are layouts for that every week too!). I found my DP at Hobby Lobby (not sure who makes it) but it had a match for Wild Wasabi so I had to get it [& later realized PTI's Lemon Tart]. It said Summer Fun to me. I colored the drink with Copics & added Crystal Effects to the ice cubes & Sakura glitter pen to the lemon. I captured the sparkle in my card - SCORE!

Here is the inside, since it focused on refreshing lemonade I placed a drink packet on the inside & stamped with the relaxing image of the beach chair, umbrella, sand & surf. Wish I was there...but in Central TX you have to drive FAR to get to the beach and when you do, well...let's just say they leave something to desire if you've ever been to a CA beach!

I also found another challenge blog - surprise! this one is A Spoon Full of Sugar and this card has circles on it, which is their challenge for this week.

There is a prize up for grabs every week on Page Plans (sketches revealed on Sundays) and A Spoon Full of Sugar (sketches revealed on Tuesday) - why not make a card incorporating the two and upload your card to their posts? See if you win?!?

OMGosh, this just super duper cool!!! I love it SO much! What a wonderfully fun idea and it really turns this into a great little summertime gift! That lemonade truly looks good enough to gulp down--totally realistic! YOu are so on top of everything too, with all these sketches and challenges and such--Not only does your blog provide a huge dose of inspiration, it's an stamper information hub too! I love it-you are great!
